This worksheet is a great practice activity for students while learning to graph quadratic functions. The worksheet contains a table with ten different quadratic functions listed. Students should graph each and be able to tell the axis of symmetry, coordinates of the vertex, if the vertex is a maximum or minimum, if the function is concave up or down, and the x-intercepts and y-intercepts. The activity provides a variety of quadratics functions in both standard form and vertex form.
I had my students complete this worksheet using a graphing calculator but you could also have students hand-graph the functions and find the vertex, x-intercepts and y-intercepts algebraically. I think this activity allows for some good discussion on which parts of the table you can fill out without even graphing the function. (i.e. you can tell if it is going to be concave up or concave down by looking to see if the a term is positive or negative).
I have provided the answer key to make this worksheet easy to check if assigned for homework. This is my first product posted on my store so I would love to have your feedback. Thanks for stopping by!
